H&V Collision Center Earns Certification for Ford Aluminum Repairs



H&V Collision Center, the largest independently owned collision repair business in the Capital Region, announced today that it has been certified by The Ford Motor Company to repair F-150 aluminum-bodied pickup trucks. The Ford certification granted to the Troy location ensures that any aluminum Ford vehicle will have a factory-trained professional assigned to its repair.

According to Autodata Corp., Ford’s F-Series pickup remained the best-selling vehicle in America in 2016, with 820,799 trucks sold. Further, the F-150 has been rated Best in Class by Kelley Blue Book ratings. To meet the potential demand to repair these automobiles, H&V has trained its employees on aluminum repair processes for structural and non-structural jobs, and to utilize the tools and equipment through the Ford Collision Network.

“At H&V Collision Center, we understand how stressful and frustrating a car accident can be,” says Vartan Jerian Jr., vice president at H&V Collision Center. “This is why we ensure that each step of the repair process is simple and results in the highest-quality repair. With the Ford aluminum certification, we can guarantee that each customer drives away feeling the same as when they bought the Ford brand new.”

While some of the Ford dealerships in the Capital Region are also Ford certified, H&V Collision Center is the first collision repair business in the area to earn the aluminum accreditation. With an alternative repair option available to customers, they are able to entrust their accident repairs to the business of their choice.
